"I had a lovely engagement ring from a previous relationship that I no longer could wear as a “dinner ring” due to sizing. I met with Nadine over Zoom and together we created exactly what I had in mind. She created a wide silver band with gold inlay positioning the larger diamonds beautifully. I love wearing the ring and have received many compliments on it. Nadine is fabulous to work with and so creative." Susan
Sterling Silver and 14K gold with diamond lily band. My customer gave me a diamond to set and we talked about what she wanted and this ring emerged. This is her response:
"Oh...wow...it's beautiful. I LOVE it!!
I think I say that each time I see a new piece that Nadine has created for me, however this ring may truly be the most beautiful. Since 2002, I have collected about 25 pieces of jewelry that Nadine has crafted; some from her collection and several that she has made especially for me. She has a unique talent for bringing new energy to gems or pearls that I owned but were not being worn. For me, Nadine creates an "experience", not just a ring." Jean Hanson
Sterling Silver and 14K yellow and rose gold marriage rings
We began a discussion of what they both loved and what they would like to see in their marriage band. I talked to them for a while to come to know what their likes were separately and together. I brought up other questions and began to synthesized their words into these rings. They were very, very happy!
"I wanted something special for my daughter’s birthday and I commissioned Nadine to create a necklace and earring set with a mermaid theme. I never imagined that it would be so beautiful. The care and skill that went into these pieces is evident. Nadine has amazing talent and her vision flows into every piece. I could not be happier with the jewelry and I look forward to her making me another piece in the future."

" My custom wedding band is utterly beautiful with several unique elements. It has a claddagh-like heart with encircling hands, a rolling wave, and an infinity symbol, all reflections of my relationship to my wife. The lines are soft and the ring somehow looks organic instead of being made of cold metal. I am pretty hard on jewelry due to working with my hands but this ring has shown no signs of wear. It's a really a work of art and I still like to look at it for the reminder of my good fortune and for its own beauty." M.M.

I used several colors of metallic paint which do not translate well in digital imagery.
